Twas I that shed the sacred blood;
I nailed him to the tree;
I crucified the Christ of God;
I joined the mockery
Of all that shouting multitude
I feel that I am one;
And in that din of voices rude
I recognize my own
Around the cross the throng I see,
Mocking the Sufferer’s groan;
Yet still my voice it seems to be
As if I mocked alone.
- Horatius Bonar (via adeneilts)
Anonymous asked: Hey! I don't know much about Calvinism, but I'm curious to know what the Calvinist's views are on the baptism of the Holy Spirit and receiving the 9 spiritual gifts (tongues, wisdom, prophecy, etc.). Do they believe they are still in use today?
When I say Calvinism, I am specifically dealing with the 5 points as they deal with God’s sovereignty over salvation. So I can’t speak for every Reformer out there when it comes to the views on gifts. Personally, I am a cautious continuest. I wouldn’t go so far as cessationism, that is, that the gifts have ceased completely, but I am very cautious in how these gifts, if given, play out in modern times.
